Spring Means Ant Season
Q. We just moved to the area and our new neighbors said the previous owners had a problem with carpenter ants. Is that common in Pennsylvania? Larry C. – North Wales, PA
A. Carpenter ants are a very common indoor pest in our area. Wet or damp wood is the carpenter ant’s preferred lodging. These large black or brown-and-black ants burrow into damp or wet wood and set up colonies that can eventually destroy the structure of your home. They excavate but don’t eat the wood in your home. If you see a carpenter ant in your kitchen or other area of your home, it is likely searching for food. Call for a free inspection to put your mind at ease.
